For the Bulletin Board: Lundqvist’s “Lucky Bounces,” Savard’s “#ByeByeTorts”

With the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers get set to square off in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, the teams decided to exchange some barbs to tack up on the bulletin board.

As if things weren’t testy enough already in this classic Boston-New York rivalry.

To start off the day, Ranger goaltender Henrik Lundqvist decided to stir the pot with some choice words regarding his opponent:

“I’ve looked at a few games, and they definitely got some lucky bounces.”

Really? Did you look at that second game, when you gave up five goals? That one didn’t make the final cut, then?

Lundqvist added,

“Last game I blame the loss on lucky bounces, but they haven’t changed the way they’re playing. They shoot from the point, and they get a lot of people in front of the net. That’s what they do, and they’re good at it. You just have to play them hard and make sure we make it tough for them to get in front.”

He probably would have been better off following coach John Tortorella’s example and holding a whopping 19 second long pregame press conference.

Speaking of Tortorella, Bruins forward Marc Savard decided to take to Twitter with some interesting comments of his own regarding the Rangers coach and his decision to make Brad Richards a healthy scratch:

Insert facepalm here. I’m not even going to try to understand anymore. Let’s just play some hockey.
